How many meals has your mother cooked for you in your lifetime?
This Sunday is the opportunity to show appreciation for all those hours in the kitchen by taking moms, grandmothers and wives to a special Mother’s Day meal out.
But what restaurants are worthy?
In a special addition of Bites Nearby, Patch comes to the rescue with five options to show mom she’s number one. (These restaurants expect to be very busy on Sunday, so reservations are suggested.)
Starting at 11 a.m., the Toasted Pheasant has a special menu planned. Items like Pacific Rim Duck Breast and Black Angus Prime Rib Roast finished with Cranberry Bread Pudding with Caramel Rum Sauce are sure to impress even the choosiest Moms. 14445 North Dale Mabry Highway, Tampa, FL 33618.
